About: Grace UCC Presents, Handel’s Messiah

On Sunday, December 2, Grace Church will present the annual performances of Handel’s Messiah. The Rutland Area Chorus, soloists and orchestra will perform the concerts at 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. under the direction of Alastair Stout, Minister of Music at Grace Church. The Messiah soloists are soprano, Allison Devery-Steinmetz, of Montpelier; alto, Amy Frostman, of South Burlington; tenor, Cameron Steinmetz, of Montpelier; and bass, Zebulun McLellan, of Tinmouth. Handel’s Messiah, one of the great Baroque choral masterpieces, depicts the prophecy and birth of Jesus Christ as told by Isaiah, the prophet and the writers of the Gospels. Alongside Messiah, the RAC will also perform Cantata No. 62 by J.S. Bach, Savior of the Nations, Come, which Bach wrote for the first Sunday of Advent. A free will offering will be received and a reception will follow the 7 p.m. performance.

We are also excited to announce the first Grace Church Composition Competition. The RAC and orchestra will premiere the winning work during the 2019 season. For more information, please call the Church Office at 775-4301.
